ASO member formula doesn't work with attribute dimension

Accepted answer


Having an issue in a Planning reporting cube (ASO) with a member formula not working when paired with an attribute dimension. The formula works perfectly as long as the attribute dimension isn't pulled into the report or the ad-hoc query. However, when the attribute dimension is pulled in, it causes the formula to not function correctly.

Content (required):

example: 3 dimensions for fun (account, source, department) and an attribute dimension on department (attrib)

formula_mbr (in source dimension) = ([specific source],[account].currentmember)/([specific source],[account].[volume acct],[department].[total departments])

as long as the department based attribute dimension isn't in the ad-hoc this works fine, as soon as the attribute dimension is pulled in, the formula ignores the 'Total Departments' part of the query and uses whatever volume is loaded to departments that are assigned to that attribute. Solve order is currently set higher than everything else this query would pull.

Howdy, Stranger!
